Is there really a “secret” to achieving prosperity, money and success? Do the suggestions and ideas in books like Think and Grow Rich, The Law of Attraction and The Strangest Secret really work?
A vast majority of the world believes you are either lucky and get all the breaks or you are destined to be one of the unfortunate ones that works twice as hard to get half as much.
According to Earl Nightingale, “Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask any failure.” One could ask the same question about using Feng Shui to better your life. If specific principles of Feng Shui are used to enhance the positive energy in the prosperity and good fortune areas of your office or your home, can you become one of the “lucky ones” and attract or create your own prosperity?
Attracting Prosperity is like winning a Lottery Ticket
Yes, the information in the books above and the principles of Feng Shui work and work equally well for everyone if applied equally and properly. Ancient Chinese Emperors used Feng Shui principles to successfully attract and influence good fortune and prosperity for their family’s next seven generations. You can also energize the prosperity and good fortune sectors of your home and office to attract prosperity as the ancient Chinese rulers did.
However, it doesn’t just happen because you want it to happen. You need to think about what to attract and how to achieve the prosperity you want – then take action. The real secret is you need to not only determine what you want and focus on attracting it but take the steps necessary to make it happen. For example, if you want to win the next multi-million dollar lottery, at minimum, you need to take action and go out and buy a lottery ticket, find one or have someone give you a lottery ticket.
The Action Plan
When things never seem to turn out right, always seem to go wrong at the worst possible moment; you never get the job, the girl, the guy, the promotion, or are in the right place at the right time; take action and use the law of attraction and the positive energy principles of Feng Shui to create a good luck and prosperity energy shift in your world.
Step 1- Unclutter, unclutter, unclutter. Locate the southeast and south areas of your office and/or living room and begin there. Make sure there is absolutely no clutter in this area or you will focus energy on the clutter and simply attract more clutter and stagnation. When it comes to the flow of energy, clutter and stagnation become energy constipation in your surroundings. You need to make room for the new prosperity
energy to enter. If you had a stale half full cold cup of coffee would you simply add fresh hot coffee to it? No, most people would remove the stale coffee first to make room for that fresh new hot coffee.
Once you have removed the clutter in these areas, do not simply shove it elsewhere and create stagnant energy in some other part of your life perhaps creating havoc with your health, creativity or relationships. Rather, put it properly away, sort it, organize it, store or file it and toss anything that is no longer relevant or important.
Step 2 – Focus positive energy on prosperity and good fortune. In order to focus energy on creating prosperity and good fortune you need to determine what you want to achieve or attract. Set your goals first, create a plan and take action. Then focus energy on attracting your end results by using color shape and design.
Good fortune and prosperity energy can be enhanced in a number of ways. Prosperity is energized by the color green, live upward reaching plants, the number four, tall rectangular shapes and wood. Good fortune is energized by the color red, fire energy, tall triangular shapes and the number nine. Some examples of “good luck” prosperity energy enhancements are:
- A wooden upright rectangular box filled with 7 coins (the new US gold colored dollar coin works great or a Susan B. Anthony coin)
- Upward reaching fresh or good quality permanent green plants
- A wooden framed picture of a huge contract or payment for services or goods
- A glass vase filled with nine tall red flowers like gladiolas
- A variety of tall red candles in varying sizes and shapes
- A predominantly red picture or jagged mountains (triangles) framed in red
- A wooden number nine painted red
Use your imagination when energizing prosperity and luck using the guidelines above. Follow this procedure in your home and at work.
Step 3 – Change your thinking. Unclutter your mind just like you uncluttered your office and home. Remove any thoughts from the past and present that will stand in your way to attracting and achieving your goals. If someone told you years ago “you will never amount to anything,” get rid of it. This is an example of old stagnant constipating thought energy and blocks new things from entering.
Whenever negative thinking creeps into your mind say to yourself, “I have shifted my thinking to attract and achieve prosperity and good luck, old rules and old thoughts no longer apply, be gone.” The more often you take control, the less your mind will recycle negative thinking and the sooner you will be able to attract and achieve prosperity and good fortune.
The secret of attracting prosperity and good luck using the law of attraction and Feng Shui principles is that it works whether you believe in it or not. It is like the air currents flowing and wind blowing – you cannot see this energy, only feel it. The same is true for campfire heat. You do not have to see the flame or the glowing embers to feel the warming energy of the fire. But you do need a tangible goal and then take action to be successful attracting and achieving your prosperity and good fortune.
